US military bases in Japan ‘targeted

Pyongyang says the missiles it fired toward Japan were part of an exercise targeting US military bases there. It comes as the White House said the deployment of the advanced THAAD anti-missile defence system to South Korea will guard it against the North.

The test launches of four missiles, fired by North Korea into the Sea of Japan on Monday morning, were a drill carried out by an army unit commissioned with attacking US military bases in Japan, the country’s official news agency KCNA said Tuesday.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un personally supervised the drill, it said.

“Involved in the drill were Hwasong artillery units of the KPA Strategic Force tasked to strike the bases of the US imperialist aggressor forces in Japan in contingency,” KCNA said. “In the hearts of artillerymen … there was burning desire to mercilessly retaliate against the warmongers going ahead with their joint war exercises.” ( RT NEWS)
